It's a Celebration!

With Christmas just two days away...I needed a Birthday card..stat! LOL! Seriously though...one can never have enough Birthday cards, now can they? It seems like I'm always hunting high and low for one when I need one. Crazy, I know... Anyhoo...isn't Party Hardy from Little Darling Saturated Canary fun? She is now available in rubber at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps!! 
 
One more thing before I go...if you're not a member of the Little Darling Facebook group...you will certainly want to be. Angie has promised to give away a FULL SET OF ALL OF STAMPS IN THE UPCOMING CHA RELEASE to a randomly chosen member of the Little Darlings Facebook group...if we can get the group to 1000 members by December 31, 2012...
So be sure to tell everyone!! 
Thank you so much for coming by and Happy Holidays!! 

Thank you so much for visiting today!!

Kraftin’ Kimmie December Sneak Peeks - Day 1

WOW! I can't believe it's the end of the year already!!Well, we've got lot of amazing new stuff at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! for our final release of 2012!! Get ready for our DECEMBER 2012 RELEASE!!!!!
We are kicking off the *New* DECEMBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and first off, we’d like to introduce you to a beautiful new set of Trinkets!!! We are very excited to share with you our GORGEOUS….CIRCUS TRINKETS!!!
What a FUN set of awesome new stamps....and I don't suppose it's going to be too hard to figure out what theme one of the artists worked with this month, huh??
These circular sentiment stamps have been created and designed by the totally talented Krafty Girl, Nicole Aspinall!! They are made especially to fit in your 1 3/8ths and 1 ¾ inch punches, for quick and easy cutting!!! This month we are releasing the CIRCUS TRINKETS set which includes EIGHT trinkets in each set with four of each size and they come as both positive and negative images, so you can use your black or brown ink with the positive stamps and use your colored inks with the negative ones!! You will get the set as a completely unmounted full sheet of deeply etched grey rubber.
A lot of the Krafty Girls are cardmakers and we have found these to be such a quick and easy way to add a sentiment to our creations or to use as the focal point on your cards! They are also perfect for your Smashbook pages and your scrapbook pages, not to mention your altered items and tags!! No stamper's stash is complete without them!
Today we have awesome samples that the Krafty Girls have put together for you....and be sure to comment on each and every stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN the new CIRCUS TRINKETS set!!! {And just WAIT 'til you see how they combine with our other NEW December stamps!!!}
Happy kraftin'!

You have to have popcorn at the circus, right? Of course...but how about candy in a popcorn box? LOL  I cut a fun box out on my Cameo, along with a few layers to pop my Circus Trinkets up…and ended up with a fun treat box and a little candy bag too. SO EASY!
That’s the thing that I love about the Trinket sets…They are so darn easy to use!!
Thank you so much for visiting..and be sure to stop by my awesome design team sister's blog for tons of fantastic Circus Trinket Inspiration. :)
